To assist victims of domestic violence and/or child abuse by providing legal expertise and resources for them to achieve a safe, healthy, and happy future that is free from the terror of ongoing abuse and violence.
Victims’ Safe Harbor Foundation, Inc. (VSHF), a 501(c)(3) social impact organization, uses a three pronged approach to fulfill its limited mission. First, VSHF represents and advises victims of domestic violence and child abuse and provides legal services for those who otherwise may not be candidates for legal aid services or cannot afford traditional attorney’s fee structures. Second, VSHF provides educational and research services in order to expand the knowledge base regarding domestic violence and child abuse. Lastly, VSHF advocates to policy makers at local, state, and federal levels regarding existing domestic violence and child abuse policies, the impact of those policies on our society, and also proposes possible solutions to improve victim centered responses.
